Applesauce Ingredients

Just apples! That’s right. All you need to make apple sauce is apples. And here is where it gets interesting. Different apples have a different flavor. Use your favorite variety of apples. Or experiment with blending several varieties.

Note: Some apples are best for baking, and some are best for eating fresh. Any variety can be used when making apple sauce. 

Directions How to Make Homemade Applesauce

  1. Use as many, or as few apples as you want. We recommend at least a dozen to make a small amount of applesauce.
  2. First, peel and core the apples.
  3. Cut each apple into a few pieces and place it in a pan.
  4. Next, cook them on top of the stove at a low-temperature setting.
  5. Some people put a small amount of water or cider in the bottom of the pan to get it started. If you start cooking at a low temperature, this is not necessary.
  6. Use a masher to break up and mash pieces as they cook.
  7. Cook until it reaches the right texture for you and your family.
  8. It is important to stir very frequently, so it doesn’t burn on the bottom.

Variations to the Recipe

Homemade apple sauce is great using apples as the sole ingredient. The apples contain plenty of sugar and lots of delicious flavor.

Some people also add:

  • A touch of butter
  • Extra sugar!
  • Cinnamon. We recommend no cinnamon in the apple sauce. Let the family add it to taste right at the table.
  • Other fruits. Try a little cranberry. It adds a distinctive taste.
